NN-CT552 combi. What caused two burn marks On top of the door and on the frame?


The inside of a microwave oven has a special paint on it. If the paint becomes damaged, the microwaves strike the bare metal and arc. This leaves a burn mark. It will also ruin the magnetron inside the oven.

Waveguide Cover

If the microwave is sparking or arcing the waveguide cover might be damaged and shorting out. Try removing the waveguide cover and see if the problem goes away. If there are any damaged spots in the microwave ceiling or sidewalls, repair them and paint them with microwave oven paint. Replace the waveguide cover if it is burnt or if it will not stay in place.

Microwave Oven Paint

If the microwave is sparking or arcing on the side walls the paint might have chipped causing pitting in the metal oven wall. Use microwave safe paint to touch up any bare metal spots.





Rack Support

If the microwave is sparking or arcing near one of the rack supports, remove the support, repaint any bare metal, install a new support.

Sparking inside microwave door


There is exposed metal, when magnetron is running it will arc if there is exposed metal in the interior cavity which is more common, I have not seen this inside microwave door, inspect door carefully when you open it to see if there are bare spots. The manufacture use to sell microwave cavity paint to prevent this very problem, if this is not corrected it will short out the magnetron.

In turning the microwave on this morning, a faint electric sparking was heard. Upon shutting it off and opening the door a burning odor was smelled. I also noticed a burned spot about a quarter inch in...


There is not any power in the door itself. However if the chassis has chipped paint or corrosion the RF from the microwaves magnetron will cause those bare metal areas to reflect the concentrated RF energy and cause sparking.

The only Whirlpool Microwaves that have been recalled, has a model number beginning with XC and had a green sticker on the bottom face area of the chassis where the door closed.

I have often been able to clean and paint the bare metal areas with the correct paint to stop the RF reflection sparks. Using the model number above it is white enamel "appliance paint" that you would use to paint the bare metal areas. A word to the wise.... do not sand outside the area to be painted. Otherwise you re-introduce your current problem post repair.

The model number you passed is missing the very last digit that would be from 0 to 7 (Eight models)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The bottom of my microwave (under the wheels of the turntable) is starting to chip. can i repair this myself with high heat appliance enamel paint?


Probably, as long as it's not rusted all the way through.

You need to sand it to bare metal, then it will take paint.

I'd leave the door open and let it dry overnight.

Whirlpool gold GT4175SPS-2 inside door paint is flaking and revealing metal. Is it safe to use?


Hi,

Scratches, flaking and bare spots are fairly common, but should be addressed as soon as they arise so the corrosion will not spread and arcing does not occur.

Unplug the power cord first.

Take some mild sanding cloth or scotchbright and clean the bare and rusted areas in the microwave. Use appliance touch up paint to re-coat the surface. You can find the touch up at most anywhere that sells appliances, it comes in a plastic bottle similar in appearance to fingernail polish, yes it does have a brush inside.

Let it dry per the instructions on the bottle or 24 hours if not specified.

If the metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

Otherwise, you may get rust and/or arcing.
